Abstract

Parkinson’s is a complex and multifaceted condition with a
myriad of symptoms, thus, designing for and with this user
group requires careful consideration. We reflect upon two
studies, employing different design methodologies, relating
to the design of rehabilitative exergames in Parkinson’s.
The first explored the concept of designing ‘for’ People
with Parkinson’s (PwP) and focused on specifications
outlined by clinical stakeholders. The second used a
designing ‘with’ approach and modified a pre-established
participatory design method for use with PwP. We call
attention to the importance of carrying out design work
with PwP and contribute; an empathic understanding of
living with Parkinson’s, a set of recommendations for how
to design with PwP and a set of wider considerations for
developing rehabilitative exergames for PwP.
